Canadian Federal Government Awarded Google Cloud For Framework Agreement to Secure Cloud Services

Google | October 23, 2020

Google Cloud announced today that it has secured a Framework Agreement for Secure Cloud from the Canadian federal government. This agreement now enables Google Cloud to directly sell innovative cloud platform and collaboration technologies to federal agencies, helping them digitally transform and better serve their communities and constituents. To secure this framework, Google Cloud was assessed by the Canadian federal government against all relevant security, privacy, and usability standards. While Google Cloud already works with several Canadian federal government agencies, the new agreement will permit Google Cloud to better support a wide range of federal departments, agencies, and crown corporations.

American Robotics is Approved by FAA to Run Automated Drones without Human Operators

American Robotics | January 19, 2021

American Robotics, a main engineer of completely robotized business drone frameworks, turned into the primary organization affirmed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to work computerized drones without human administrators on location. The organization's Scout System™ highlights progressed acoustic Detect-and-Avoid (DAA) innovation that empowers its drones to keep a protected separation from other airplane consistently. By building up a layered, repetitive arrangement of security that incorporates exclusive specialized and operational danger alleviations, American Robotics has demonstrated that its robot based ethereal insight stage works securely in the National Airspace System (NAS), in any event, when it conducts trips Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) of the administrator. This endorsement speaks to a huge articulation point in the business drone industry. Earlier waivers and confirmations granted by the FAA required visual eyewitnesses (VOs) positioned along the flight way to keep eyes on the airspace consistently, or required other troublesome limitations, for example, foundation covering. Therefore, the worth and versatility of business drone use in the U.S. has, as of not long ago, been radically hindered or much of the time wiped out. “With these approvals, American Robotics is ushering in a new era of widespread automated drone operations,” said Reese Mozer, CEO and co-founder of American Robotics. “Decades worth of promise and projection are finally coming to fruition. We are proud to be the first company to meet the FAA’s comprehensive safety requirements, which had previously restricted the viability of drone use in the commercial sector. We are very grateful for the FAA’s willingness to work closely with American Robotics over the past four years on this precedent-setting authorization. With this set of approvals, American Robotics can begin safely operating our automated Scout platform for the benefit of the energy, infrastructure, agriculture, and security market verticals, helping unlock the projected $100 billion commercial drone market.”
